    Are you American? If you are I can only suggest you apply to two: McGill and Memorial in NewFoundland. If you have a high GPA and awesome MCAT look into Toronto and Ottawa but otherwise I'd save my money.

    I am American...and I'm actually really interested in McGill. I've looked on their website and have also found a decent Canadian forum for students applying to McGill, but it's geared towards Canadians, so I was looking for some more advice. For example, a sample personal statement. Any help would be appreciated! :)

However, other out-of-province applicants and I were greeted by American med students at McGill during that interview weekend because, well, they out-numbered the out-of-province Canadian students by far! So the Americans became our hosts for the weekend. They were very, very happy at McGill and had had a wonderful time at Montreal. I posted about these before. Other than these, I don't know if you have other specific questions about the school. Application-wise it should be the same as other schools: the higher your GPA/MCAT are, the better; spend some quality time on writing your personal statement, etc. etc. Then once you get an interview, try to check the school out thoroughly!

    You are welcome to PM me with more questions.
